Peer review policy

Submissions to IJUSEng are assessed by independent referees who make recommendations on the suitability of the manuscripts for publication. Our refereeing process is double-blind. We are committed to providing timely assessment of articles and authors are informed of the publication decision as soon as possible.





Manuscript preparation

The text should be double-spaced throughout and with a minimum of 2.5 cm for left and right hand margins and 2.5 cm at head and foot. Text should be in Arial font and standard 12 point.


File types

All files, including Tables and Figures, should be submitted as a Word document.


Corresponding author contact details

Provide full contact details for the corresponding author including email, mailing address and telephone numbers. Academic affiliations are required for all co-authors.


Guidelines for submitting artwork, figures and other graphics

Colour illustrations, pictures and graphs submitted in electronic format together with your accepted article will appear in colour online.


Mathematical typeface

All vectors and matrices should be shown in bold type. Avoid confusion between ambiguous characters and take care to ensure that subscripts and superscripts are clear. Numbers below 10 should be written out in the text unless used in conjunction with units (e.g., four coordinates, 4 m). Full points (not commas) should be used for decimals. For numbers less than one, a nought should be inserted before the decimal point. Equations should be numbered sequentially throughout the document, with labels on the right hand side of the page.
